Seize the Birthday Challenge #221 - By the Sea

Our "Topping" option this time is...

If you are not into using the toppings, just make sure it is a birthday card. 

Our hardworking leader, Nancy is our host for this challenge and it is a doozie. She chose By the Sea, Maybe because she lives there? Anyway, there are so many possibilities here. I can't wait to see what you do. 

Here is my card.

Supplies for this card are:
Cherry Lynn dies, Cattails and Reeds
Gina K Designs = By The Sea 2 and Signs of Spring for the Sentiment, Tourquise Sea cardstock, and matching envelope. 

A close-up of the waves enhanced with white ink and a stiff brush. 
 I watched this video by Teresa Momber

We have a new Surprise Party Guest for the next couple of months.
She is Jenny Martin and you can find her creations HERE
